- Loftus-Cheek moved from Chelsea to AC Milan
- Midfielder finds Milan's environment incredible
- Chelsea departure marked a significant change
WHAT HAPPENED? The midfielder is thoroughly enjoying his new chapter at AC Milan, having departed the Blues during the summer transfer window. His €16 million (£14m/$17m) move in July signified the end of his long association with Chelsea, where he had been part of the club since joining as a young player in 2012. Since joining Milan, he has made a 'very positive' start, featuring in almost every match and establishing himself as a key player early on. Loftus-Cheek shared his amazement at Milan's environment, emphasising the club's history and the grandeur of the stadium.
WHAT THEY SAID: Ruben Loftus-Cheek remarked [via Sport Witness]: "It’s incredible, I look around and I’m still amazed by the size of the stadium, by its history. I look at all this, I think I can play here every week and God knows for how long, so I’m really happy about it all. It’s incredible to have such support despite such a bad result in the championship."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Englishman's move to AC Milan signifies a significant change in his career trajectory. Leaving Chelsea, where he spent over a decade, was a big step, and his early experiences at Milan have been promising.
